carsten's first painting

Yesterday while Taylor and I were painting and stamping with pears, Carsten sat up at the table in his highchair snacking and watching us intently. He seemed interested in the paints, so I grabbed some paper for him and put some paints on his fingers and let him go at the paper.

I was pretty surprised that the gooey paint fingers didn't go into the mouth immediately - he wanted at the paper instead, which worked perfectly! I tried to paint his whole hand so I could get a hand print, but it was almost impossible to get him to uncurl his fingers!

Looks like I have two boys that like to paint - this thrills me to no end!!
